  1. Dear family, may many happy memories of Mr. Lor be with you. But when sadness comes, may these promises from the Bible give you true solace. Jehovah God is close to the brokenhearted, and saves those who are crushed in spirit. And he will wipe away the tears from all faces. Psalms 34:18; Isaiah 258 NWT. There will be a wonderful future ( Matthew 5:5 ) when people all over the earth will not suffer illness ever again. No resident will say: ” I am sick.” Isaiah 33:24; Psalms 37:11, 29 NWT. Peace be with you, dear family.
